At Ashby C of E Primary we are proud to have pupil representatives who take part in School Council meetings. Our School Council consists of a team of extremely pro-active, dedicated and enthusiastic children, democratically voted in by their peers, to represent the pupil’s voice. The members of the council take their roles very seriously and, as a result of their hard work, have orchestrated and coordinated positive changes within the school over a number of years.
Past projects have included the peace garden, leading school events and children also take a role in the interviewing of candidates for upcoming jobs in the school.
The School Council Vision Statements are as follows:
Our school councillors for 2019/20 have been elected. Each year group has two representatives from Years 1-6 who will meet on a regular basis throughout their year of office. Mrs Brady (Staff Councillor) will be supporting the School Council this year to make positive changes both within school and our local community. We will be coming up with ideas for improving the school environment, looking at ways to ensure access to the newly completed MUGGA is fair to all across the school and initiating fundraising opportunities alongside any other projects that are raised in the meetings.
Our Councillors (2019-2020)
Year 1 – Jude & Harriet
Year 2 – Nathaniel & Ivy
Year 3 – Rupert & Constance
Year 4 – Harry & Emmie
Year 5 – Ben & Molly
Year 6 – Luke & Ruby Ray
When asked why they had chosen to run for school council this year the children had the following answers.
Molly said “I can make the playground and the school more fun, organise bake sales to raise money for new things”.
Harry said “Everyone knows they can trust me and come to talk to me about things”.
Ruby-Ray said “I wanted to be on School Council to help everyone pass ideas on to make the school better”.
We already have lots of ideas of things we would like to do including a half termly school council ‘drop in’ session where children can air their ideas with the school councillors and re-instating the School Council Suggestion Box. The children are also keen to raise their profile by leading assemblies and fundraising.
